TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2014
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM, ROOM 26-214

Dr. Denny Dahl, D-Wave Systems
“Quantum computing with a D-Wave”

D-Wave Systems manufactures and sells the world’s first quantum computing system. During this talk, we will provide an overview of the company’s activities. We’ll describe the scientific and engineering challenges we are facing and the kinds of skills that we need to help us meet those challenges. The talk will include a demonstration in which we will pose and solve problems on an existing quantum computer.

“The students in MIT’s new NSF training program will be encouraged to cross disciplines, and develop a common fellowship with their peers. We will also address training for post-academic jobs directly by connecting students to government and industrial members of the iQuISE Consortium.”

—Seth Lloyd, Co-Director, iQuISE, and Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Professor of Engineering Systems
